I had my behind the seat rifle stolen a year ago and never replaced it.
A couple of days ago I picked up a Stevens 200 in 223 with a Tasco 3x9x40 already mounted. The whole outfit was brand splinter new and only cost me $275.
Heres the part that don't make sense. I have owned rifles with Shilen,Hart,Lija,McGowen etc etc barrels. I have had rifles with the actions blueprinted and have payed $500 just for top of the line super duper quality stocks. I have spent a grand on scope and mounts alone.......and for a measley $275 I have a rifle that will shoot right with the best of them.
All I did was mess with the trigger a little and the little gun clover leafed the first 3 shots @ 100 yds! The next group was larger at 3/8ths of an inch!
Dang it...now I gotta start locking the truck!
